Autumn - Wet The Face Seasonal Release

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Autumn

Well it’s that time of year again and soon all the colors of fall will be upon us and what an amazing display of mother nature at its best. The start of fall for us also means our fall release called Autumn. It's one of my favorite and judging from the sneak peek I provided on FB Wednesday it appears it could be one of yours as well.

We took what makes this time of year special and brought into our shaving soap and aftershave splash and we feel once you open them and smell that autumn goodness you’ll instantly be transformed back in time when playing outside with your friends and family among the colorful backdrop of trees was the best life had to offer.

Shaving & Talking # 7 - Featuring Cool Cologne Lather Shave Cream

 Shaving & Talking #7

Around 4 years ago I had my first try with some overseas shaving products and one of them was Cool Cologne Lather Shaving Cream. A fantastic cream for very little money. Today we bring that one back to the forefront to use it again in our shaving & talking video this week. 

If you never tried this one please do so the performance is great but it could use more menthol but that’s just me. You might have to look for this one online because it only sold in the UK, Well, at least it was 4 years ago.

Pearl Man Coffeeop Shaving Soap

Company: Perl Man
Product: Coffeeop Shaving Soap

Today we try the other Pearl Man shaving soap called coffeeop. This soap is manufactured in India. The words artisan shaving soap show predominately on the side label and one has to wonder when do you drop the moniker of an artisan when it's been manufactured by a well-known private label company?

On my first use of this soap a few months ago I didn’t pay attention to its label but now with this second try, I took a closer look. Mahavir Health is the manufacture of this product it’s recognition in the field of manufacturing, exporting, importing, and supplying an outstanding range of Bath Soap, Herbal Soap, Fairness Soap, Shaving Cream, Talcum Powder, Fairness Cream, Skin Toner Cream, Sun Screen Cream, Hair Food Cream, Herbal Toothpaste, etc. Does that sound like an artisan shop to you?

Captain’s Choice - Leather Accessories / Resin Synthetic Brush

Company: Captain’s Choice
Product: Leather Accessories / Resin Synthetic Brush

This week we have something new from Captain’s Choice. Leather accessories and a resin handle synthetic shaving brush which I am calling Ocean. The design of the handle mimics the waves of the ocean which I think is spot on.

One of the leather accessories is a razor jacket. We’ve seen all these before but what makes this different is the antiqued brass button. This I have never seen on any piece before its a nice touch if you ask me. I notice that most razor poles (handles) should fit through the hole provided if it's too small for your razor then you'll need to make adjustments. I'll use mine not because I travel but because it just looks so cool. 

Next, we have the leather brush roll cover. This hand-crafted piece includes a black leather strap that secures the brush inside but is not so tight that it can’t breathe. The brush roll promotes the drying of the brush allowing air to flow freely around it. Protecting your brush and razor is now easier than ever thanks to the captain’s brother who happens to be a leather craftsman.

Company: A&E
Product: A&E Vanille De Tabac

A while back I received a sample of A&E Vanille De Tabac this would be my first try using one of Peters products. I remember watching his Youtube videos and around 2015 or so I even tried honing for the first time it was a gathering in Belmont park that Billy T was giving and Peter was there. I had just purchased all the stones with a case and was eager to learn something new. I never did continue with honing I had no time to devote to it but loved seeing everyone involved. I think I have a Youtube Video of that day on my channel.

Watermelon Strawberry's

New From Wet The Face

Well, August is already here, and in a few weeks summer will be over. Before we say goodbye to barbecues and bikinis I have one more shaving soap to release before the temperatures drop. Today I’m releasing Watermelon and Strawberries. One of the simple pleasures of the summer is having a slice of watermelon with family and friends I remember mom bringing out a bowl full of strawberries for all of us to have as well and now you can bring back those memories every time you shave.
